Say there is a solicitation that had a lengthy, complex Section C, SOW/PWS. But in Section M, the Evaluation Criteria, for Technical Approach Evaluation Factor, simply says something like, "We will evaluate for the proposal's compliance with the Capabilities requirement." If the Capabilities requirement was only a portion of the SOW, is it reasonable to interpret that the agency must only evaluate IAW the solicitation's weird Section M statement limiting evaluation only to the Capabilities requirement, so therefore, if the agency evaluates for compliance with the entire SOW, that is wrong?

Assume that the solicitation due date for receipt of proposals has closed, so one cannot engage the CO in Q&A.

If "Capabilities" is a separate and distinct topic in the SOW, it would seem to be improper to evaluate a proposal beyond that stated evaluation criteria, based upon the little bit of information you provided. However, it also depends upon the entire context of the situation. For example, one would have to know what proposal information was required to be submitted for evaluation.

It is not possible to answer your question without knowledge of the contents of Section M of the solicitation, or its equivalent if you received a commercial item solicitation that was prepared without using the Uniform Contract Format.
